Van Noy played all 69 defensive snaps for the Patriots in the season opener against the Chiefs, frequently acting as the primary signal-caller. With Dont’a Hightower possibly playing more off the edge (or missing time due to injury), the Patriots are depending on Van Noy to be a solid presence in the middle of the unit.

The 26-year-old linebacker was originally acquired from the Detroit Lions during the 2016 season, playing a key role on the Patriots defense down the stretch and through the playoffs. He was set to become a free agent after 2017.

  1. Obviously they evaluate players for a living and we’re fans. But as a fan, I ask what am I missing from his play that warrants the extension. Must be a leader and gives it 100% everyday, all the intangible stuff. I mean less than a year ago he was literally shipped out of Detroit. Who knows.
